Meri Body

The huge taboo and lack of basic knowledge on the topic of periods and the monthly cycle often results in the sad truth that young girls fear that they are dying when they start bleeding. Each month turns into an embarrassment and results in young girls missing days of school, wearing rags and cloths instead of sanitary pads. 

India is a land of 1,3 billion people, half of them being under the age of 25 years. Misconceptions unfortunately exist so many women think they are fertile during their period. Access to period products is a tough challenge and using contraception is uncommon for women. This leads to unwanted pregnancies (National estimate is 15,6 million abortions annually). 

Every girl in India is tech-savvy and loves to have an education. Yet body literacy is so underdeveloped. This initiative is designed to reach the youngsters (target group 12-25 years age) who are willing to use technology and are eager to learn more about their bodies and menstruation. 

Namita Krul, Social Entrepreneur & Founder of Meri Body developed the Meri Body e-health app as a solution for this huge problem while working with low-income young women from different communities, small towns and villages in India. The app is especially designed to educate millions of adolescents and young women on #periods, #menstruationhealth and #reproductivehealthcare through simple illustrations in local languages. This tool explains both periods and fertility while busting myths around the topics. Teaching the low-educated women to understand their bodies will lead to more body empowerment, ability to deal with side effects of the period, less school dropouts, and less unwanted pregnancies. This in turn leads to improved healthcare and well-being.
